Members of the public will get their say on the key Paradise Birmingham scheme after a series of exhibitions were revealed.

Following on from the outline planning permission gained in 2013 for the Paradise masterplan, previously known as Paradise Circus , work has been underway on the detailed design of the first two buildings.

People will also be able to have their say on proposals to upgrade Chamberlain Square by three internationally-renowned architects.

Developer Argent is preparing to submit three planning applications for the scheme which will transform part of the city centre and see the Central Library building knocked down.

The exhibition will present the detailed design of the first two speculative office buildings – One and Two Chamberlain Square – designed by Eric Parry and Glenn Howells Architects respectively.

The buildings will have space for shops and restaurants at ground level and overlook the upgraded public realm in Chamberlain Square designed by landscape architects Grant Associates.

Argent senior projects director Rob Groves said: “The exhibition highlights the detailed design of the first two buildings together with the complete refurbishment of Chamberlain Square in the first phase of this transformational development.

“Paradise is set to bring thousands of jobs, massive improvements and significant investment to the city centre over the coming years and I would encourage anybody who lives, works or visits the area regularly to come along and see the plans for themselves.”

The exhibition will be held on the seventh floor of 77 Paradise Circus and will be open to the public on the following days:

April 16, 1pm to 8pm

April 17, 8am to 6pm

April 18, 9am to 1pm

The exhibitions are open to anybody living and working in the area.

The aim is to enable local businesses, residents and other interested parties to view the proposals and ask questions of the project team prior to submission of the detailed planning applications.
